There is not much information about the exterior style and the caught testing mule has been under the heavy camouflage but expects an evolutionary design with a lot of details taken from new Europe specs Passat. Except for more room, the interior of the new Volkswagen Tuareg 2017 will also be characterized by the latest tech features, like digital gauge cluster, long list of driver assist systems and maybe some semi-autonomous technology.

Engine and Performance

The engine range for new Vlkswagen Touareg 2017 will, among other units, also include a diesel with 300 hp, V6 gasoline that makes 330 hp, as well as a plug-in hybrid variant. The latter is probably going to be a combination already seen in the Audi Q7 e-tron, which includes a 3.0-litre TDI diesel engine, an electric motor and lithium-ion batteries with a total power output rated at 373 hp.

This version of Volkswagen Touareg should also provide the only electric drive with a range of 56 km (35 miles). On the American market expect four-cylinder power plant to be the standard. There are also rumours about the ten-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission; we sure hope to see it.
